Is a collection of stories that could not have been written just a generation ago. Nearly all of the stories take place in a place called the New South with racial relationships that would have been unimaginable prior to the Civil Rights Movement. The laws that came about during the sixties proved that behavior can be changed through legislation. Racial tensions and inequalities still exist among the last generation of whites with a psychological need for white Privileges and the last generation of blacks who will tolerate the imbalances created by white privilege – in the New South these matters are confronted with a new attitude and it is this new assertiveness that colors the stories in this book.
